Weighing 322 tonnes, the turbine was unloaded from a special modular trailer, raised six metres, then successfully installed onto its foundations in the Sredneuralsk Power Station, which is operated by OGK-5, one of the biggest electricity producers in Russia.

A Unic 1,000 tonne gantry system, specially delivered from Poland to Sredneuralsk, was used to lift the turbine and a 288 tonne generator.
